Keswick in the northwest part of the county has fewer visitors compared to other parts, but it is vibrant enough to offer tourists lots to see and do. You can also go on a lake cruise or even find out here where pencils came from! Penrith in the northeast is not only breathtaking, but it is also teeming with history. Ruins dating back from the Roman and even the Neolithic times are perfect for history buffs. Another favorite is Carlisle, where you can follow the trail of Hadrian’s Wall.

The southeast is the most popular, with favorite towns like Kendal, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside, and others attracting lots of people yearly for access to the Lake District National Park. Lastly, the southwest has the most rugged landscape, which will enthrall nature lovers.
